Stayed with our 3 children twice, on way to Te Anau & on way back - excellent location, Large rooms with plenty space. The towels are beautiful quality & beds were very comfy. Didn’t hear any traffic noise at night even though close to road, also just one street over is an area of restaurants & takeaway places (including the #1 TripAdvisor rated Indian restaurant in Dunedin !) .. we got fish n chips for kids & Indian for us - were able to walk there to collect it, very handy location. The family that own the motel are very helpful & friendly & it’s lively to have tea, plunger coffee, hot choc & milk etc all in room :) We’ll be back !

We were upgraded on arrival and were welcomed by a very friendly and helpful lady who went out of her way to assist in enabling us to clean our rental car, and with advice on where to eat. The room was very spacious and reasonably priced.

Booked the cheapest studio room and it was still very spacious, clean, tidy and had everything we needed. The staff were very friendly and offered advice on things to try and see while staying in Dunedin. Even though we were right on what looked like a main road, the room was very quiet, we did not hear road noise at all and we were only 1 room from the front. Will definitely stay here again if and when we get back to Dunedin.

Great service, we had a large group attend a conference and this accommodation was clean and the service was excellent. We stayed in a studio apartment, this was well equipped. The single bed was a little springy, but my roommate said the queen bed was very comfy. Would def stay again

My wife and I stayed here in order to watch a large concert. Luckily we had a unit at the back away from the main road so it was nice and quiet or sort of. Unfortunately there were some very rude ignorant people staying below us who came back around 3am and made loud noises for the rest of the night. Unfortunately the office staff weren’t around when we left so we couldn’t inform them.
